Station Name: QUY
July 1969 and just five years after the very last train hauled by Brush Type 2 D5662 trundled through Quy dilapidation, aided and abetted by nature, is becoming the order of the day. The two-storey cottages, 'cottages' being how the railway referred to them, have gained television aerials and appear to be inhabited. When a railway is operational, just the occasional passing train and a few people moving around is enough to prevent seeds settling and nature taking over ferociously. Once a line closes, especially in rural areas, there is little to drive birds away and seeds settling so nature rapidly takes over. Weeds are even starting to grow out of the brick platform facing.
